Good morning and happy Monday! I hope that your day is off to a positive start.
Mine is off to a sore start. I did another ashtanga practice at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday with David Keil. My practice felt really good and I was happy that after a long hiatus from ashtanga that I was still able to pretty much pick up where I left off with all of the binding postures, jump backs and jump throughs and backbends. Although I was able to do everything, it left me so sore. My hamstrings, lats and shoulders are killing.
It was so nice to practice with a new teacher. I picked up some great tips on two things that I have been struggling with for over a year so I’m excited to put those tips to the test and see if I can make some improvement. One goal I have for the year is to broaden my yoga horizons. I want to participate in more trainings and workshops.
After a quick nap in savasana (passed out for at least 15 minutes…blissful!), I was on my way to Y2 to teach the 9:15 hot class. I decided to wait and eat after class so I could make Sunday brunch so I picked up a strawberry banana smoothie from Starbucks to hold me over. It was refreshing after practice.
I was craving eggs so I made an open faced sandwich with hummus, avocado, scrambled eggs, spinach and white cheddar. Grapes, oranges and blue corn chips on the side.
Dinner was kind of a repeat of brunch…bread, spinach and cheese. What can I say? I am a creature of habit and always have the same staples on hand. Do you find yourself using the same combinations of food a lot? I have a rotation of staple foods/meals that I repeat in some form all of the time. It’s just so easy.
Pita pizza with homemade pita bread from the freezer, marinara sauce, tofu, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella and Italian seasoning. The pita made for the perfect pizza crust.
Today is already off to a busy start. I launched the new BodyPump this morning (review to come) and now Sullie and I are working in a coffee shop (love that they’re pet friendly!). The blog update is fun work but I’m about to start working on tax stuff for a meeting with our accountant today. Bleh.
Have a WONDERFUL week!
